Tufts Academic Resource Center (ARC) and Writing Center: I strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of the Tufts Writing Center. To schedule a free appointment with a writing consultant, go to the “Tutor Finder” under the “Academics” menu on SIS.

Plagiarism: Plagiarism is a serious offense. Tufts defines plagiarism as intentionally or unintentionally using someone else’s ideas without proper citation. We will discuss avoiding plagiarism in the research process, but in the meantime please refer to the Tufts Academic Integrity Handbook if you have questions.

Tufts Student Accessibility Services: If you are you registered with Tufts Student Accessibility Services and would like to discuss how to best make this class work for you, please make an appointment with me. If you are considering whether or not to register, I recommend it, even if you don’t need any accommodations at this point. You never know what might be useful in the future.

Counseling and Mental Health Service: Life can be challenging, especially when you are starting college. If you’re having a hard time, the staff at CMHS is there to help. CMHS offer a range of services, including a counselor on-call for emergencies.
